Backstage Update On Goldberg Returning To WWE, HHH Working On It Personally

Former WWE Superstar appeared at the C4 Comic Con in Winnigpeg a few weeks ago and was asked about the possibility of appearing at XXX for WWE in 2014. noted that has called him multiple times and they have talked, but there is no official deal in place.

Goldberg spoke about being open to coming back, as he would like his son to see him wrestle at least once on a major stage, but he said he would only do it if the price was right. Goldberg said he would never call WWE personally and ask to return. He said the ball is in their court and that they know what needs to be done if they want him to return. One source noted that Goldberg’s financial demands were very significant.

Goldberg also talked about WWE trying to push the idea of him getting an enormous pop, saying “think of the pop you’ll get,” but Goldberg claims they are using the wrong negotiation tactics by saying things like that.

      WWE is trying to convince Goldberg to sign by telling him “Think of the pop you’ll get.” Come on, WWE, you gotta try harder then that.

              No, unfortunately it seems like the troll has a man crush on me and only me. Cute, right?

              You are the Randy Orton of SEScoops.

            • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

              Orton always has been ‘The sh1it’ though. Used to be my favourite wrestler back in the Legend Killer days so I take that as a huge compliment.

            • pwnez

              Yeah but he’s Borton now so it could be mixed.

            • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

              He looks like a total boss, he has some sick in ring psychology in how he moves. The only boring thing is the situations he gets put in by writers, he is one heck of an athlete to be honest.

        • payton

          Can i be the heath slater?

      • SOBI

        If Goldberg does come back which match should happen
        Goldberg Vs Taker
        or
        Brock vs Taker
        the first one will sell more tickets and the latter will be a better match IMO

    • Bryan

      Only if he buries Ryback yeah I think he should come back as I want Ryback gone as he’s a waste of precious air time that could be used for Dolph Ziggler, Damian Sandow hell even Heath Slater.

      • Maltodextrin

        Change “Ryback” to “Khali”

        • Bro88

          I say we bury both and pretend they never existed

      • Andrew Campbell

        Ziggler isn’t going anywhere or doing anything significant anytime soon regardless whether Ryback is there or not.

        And as for Ryback, WWE has done a pretty good job burying Ryback themselves over the past year. The guy is done.

      • SOBI

        IMO Ryback gets more hate then he deserves sure he doesn’t belong in the main event but he is good for the midcard he can become a great stepping stone for younger guys and he IS very strong so that is a quality
        May be throw him in the Tag division or just as an bodyguard for a Main event guy or have him fued for IC and US titles.

    • fatneal

      i think they should pay him whatever he wants but make the contract play out until after extremem rules…they could have goldberg just appear and spear some heel at mania but have ryback attack him from behind….then they can have ryback imitating his move set in matches until goldberg spears him on raw and they fight at extreme rules with goldberg going over and retiring

      • Adam-Michael

        Pay him whatever he wants?…. It’s not like Goldberg showing up and spearing somebody will make people buy the show

        • fatneal

          actually yes it would….goldberg is a draw dude…but if you read my comment in its entirety you’d know i said pay him what he wants but have him stay past mania up until the raw after extreme rules

          • Adam-Michael

            He was a draw in WCW but in WWE the guy was a flop, because he couldn’t work a proper match with an actual story or moveset, in WCW it was a case of arrive, spear, jackhammer, leave. That can only work for so long and when it came down to it the guy is not a good worker…

            • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

              goldberg was excellent in WCW BUT IN WWE HE’S AWFUL HOW TO MOVE SOME SET! YOU HAVE TO BLAE THE WWE WRITERS GOLDBERG WAS AWFUL TO WWE RATHER THAN WCW!

        • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

          yes your right! if goldberg comes back many people will watch even on internet sites they said if goldberg returns they’ll watch wwe again!

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        If he comes back to WWE it’ll be to wrestle at WM, not Extreme rules. What you’re saying could happen at Elimination Chamber though – then gets it set up for WM.

        • fatneal

          whether its ppv before or after mania they should pay him whatever he wants and have him build his feud with whoever properly and end it properly

          • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

            yeah i agree! i might think wwe will gave what he wants because Bill Goldberg stated before on 2005 he wants the right price, Build His Feud Properly and a less schedule similar to Brock Lesnar type Contract!

      • Progressed_Now

        agreed, give him the amount he wants, but make him work for it at the same time.

    • Marshall Mathers

      RYBACK RULES!!!

    • LaParkaXV

      F_CK Goldberg! Dude overrates himself to the extreme! He was one of the hottest acts in wrestling for all of 12 months and then became a joke. I don’t think Goldberg would increase WM buyrate at ALL. Id personally would rather watch a 60 year old Flair wrestle another match.

      • fatneal

        flair wouldnt even need to wreslte id watch him and austin drink beer and talk for a couple hours….but all jokes aside if goldberg came back on a raw leading up to mania jack hammered ryback or whoever and then a match was set yes it would bring buys…goldberg is and always was a draw

    • YES

      Goldberg should just return it will be a very light schedule let him return at Elimintaion Chamber or The Rumble Spear Ryback then Jackhammer him come to Raw the next night have him and Rybacks match be announced then Goldberg could take a break until the last Raw before Mania have him and Ryback have another segment let him beat Ryback at Mania and oh god if WWE is really thinking hmmmm maybe we shoudnt sign Goldberg because we dont want him to beat Ryback at Mania that makes Ryback look weak like seriously if thats what they are thinking lets look at Rybacks PPV record before the Goldberg match was even planned WWE are the ones messing up Ryback they make him look so strong on TV but hes a jobber on PPVs lol .

    • SomeInternetGuy

      WWE could waste $1,000,000 to bring back Goldberg for one night and bury Ryback’s career. WWE could waste $500,000 or more on Hulk Hogan, a guy who can’t wrestle and warns that he’ll buy a ticket and show up anyway which would disrupt the show. WWE could waste $1,000,000 on The Rock and have to tell their investors AGAIN why they wasted so much money on part-timers and didn’t get enough in return.

      Or WWE could just rely on FULL-TIME WRESTLERS they’ve had for 5+ years to carry a Wrestlemania and pay a little extra to bring Shawn Michaels back to fight Daniel Bryan.

      • Bushwald Sexyface

        They can’t rely on their full time wrestlers + only Shawn Michaels to get the buyrate they want, especially for WM 30. They haven’t built up their current top guys enough with the exception of Cena and Cena definitely can’t bring the buyrate they want by himself.

      • insomniacreviewer

        Shawn Michaels won’t wrestle another match

      • AceRuby

        Its the 30 year anniversary of their biggest ppv yea I don’t blame the WWE for wanting to get guys like Goldberg on the show it honestly should be a celebration of those 30 years. Hell I even approve them bringing in guys like Hogan as well because lets face it without Hogan Mania wouldn’t of been the success it was early on. The WWE has money honestly at this point they are the only mainstream game in town right now and can afford the guys they want to have at the show at this point. I understand your concern about young talent on the roster but lets be real honest here the WWE hasn’t done a very good job at all building its talent for a few years now they blundered many pushes, Daniel Bryan being the most recent casualty of this.

    • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

      I don’t give a monkey crap about Goldberg, stay away in my opinion.

    • Derringer Duo

      Boy you can really tell when these guys have enough money in the bank and don’t love this business.

    • Drmgiver

      Get out of here F’er.

    • Universe

      Goldberg! Goldberg! Goldberg!

    • Universe

      Goldberg is best for business!

    • Big E Langston

      Three ain’t enough, man; I need five.

    • Damian BanCster

      They should bring Goldberg back, in the the weeks leading up to WrestleMania and let him smash some Jobbers on Raw and maybe even on Smackdown…and at the same time, have Ryback do his “Feed Me More” schtick…while both of them go undefeated for about a month and a half…Then, finally, they’ll run into each other backstage and have some words about who’s better, causing them to get into a brawl in the back, thus causing them to feud…then they interfere in each others matches, one week. Then they maybe fight on the stage, one week…all leading up to Mania

      • AceRuby

        Would of made a ton of sense if Ryback didn’t get buried the way he has the past 6+ months…

    • Johnny B Bad

      Goldberg cares about one thing and one thing only….money.
      It’s not about ever giving the fans one more match, it’s only about getting one more paycheck.
      Goldberg proved at Wrestlemania XX that he nor Lesnar cared about putting on a good match because they were leaving, they both got their big paycheck and they put on one of the worst matches in history.

    • WCWPunk

      I can’t stand Goldberg. I hope he DOES NOT sign an agreement with WWE. He brings absolutely ZERO value to the WWE. Look at RVD, The Rock, and especially Brock Lesnar, … all in which wrestle on very limited schedules. They pitched what they wanted to get out of the WWE for money and Goldberg will do the same thing. He has absolutely no long term plans. If he was truly passionate about professional wrestling, he would’ve returned a long time ago. How long has it been since he last wrestled for WWE? What, 2004. And now he only wants to come back if the ‘Money is right’. He has zero interest for the wrestling fans, he’s only in it for himself.

      • G.I.R.L.

        Sounds like Hogan and most returning wrestlers.

      • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

        MAYBE HE WILL HAVE A LONG TERM PLANS TO THE WWE RIGHT NOW AS A LIMITED SCHEDULE AND HE RETIRES AT 55 MAYBE SO HE CAN MAKE LONG TO THE WWE AND MAKE HIM AFTER HALL OF FAME!

    • Kris Mystery

      Goldberg is an overrated hack who couldn’t have a decent match with the best of them. His 2 moves of doom would surely bring in the viewers right? Nope. Very little talent and not worth any amount of money.. no matter how little.

      • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

        WRONG HE WAS TALENTED WAY BACK IN WCW BECAUSE IN WWE SCRIPT WRITERS DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE HIM WELL!!! MAYBE RIGHT NOW IT’S NOT AWFUL CAUSE TRIPLE H IS DOING THE JOB WELL!

    • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

      IF I WERE VINCE MCMAHON I WILL GAVE WHAT GOLDBERG WANTS AND GAVE HIM PART TIME CONTRACT! SO THE DEAL IS EASY!

    • MajorHeel

      Goldberg doesn’t want a pop, HE WANTS MONEY!

    • syn kara

      So he’s only looking for the big payday, with figures that he doesn’t truly deserve. Very few fans will really care if he’s coming back for an un-earned WM30 spot. He won’t sell tickets or PPVs – won’t make a bit of difference if here’s there or not. WWE doesn’t need a one hit wonder like him. He was never really much of a WWE star anyways.

    • syn kara

      I’d be more interested in seeing Snuka, Piper, Strike Force, Hart Foundation, Demolition do some kind of backstage interview or something. Goldberg is irrelevant today as he was 10 years ago.

    • Mr_DJ

      c’mon Bill, you’re already rich as f*ck…

    • Thomas Boling

      I AM PEOPLE POWER AND WWE IS NOTHING BUT PEOPLE POWER

    • Jack

      no one under the age of 18 could care less about goldberg, get over yourself, old washed up, he wouldn’t be able to last 5 minutes in the ring with someone like bryan, even in his prime….goldberg you’re irrelevant, stay away please!!

      • AceRuby

        And yet he will get one of the loudest reactions since Brock Lesnar came back you might not like the guy but millions remember him and do like him , I mean people do chant his name when Ryback comes out and all but we won’t acknowledge that of course….

    • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

      IF TRIPLE H CAN GET GOLDBERG A DEAL THAT HE WANTS MAYBE IT WOULD HAPPEN MAKE GOLDBERG WIN IF HE WILL HAVE A PART TIME CONTRACT LIKE BROCK LESNAR AND RIGHT PRICE! BECAUSE TRIPLE H IS THE ONE WHO GOT ROB VAN DAM BACK TO THE WWE! MAYBE IT COULD HAPPEN AND MAKE GOLDBERG WIN!

    • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

      WWE SHOULD SAY THIS BILL GOLDBERG I WILL GIVE YOU 1 MILLION DOLLARS RIGHT NOW AND A PART TIME CONTRACT LIKE BROCK LESNAR? HE SAYS SURE I’LL GET IT NOW AND SIGN A CONTRACT DEAL!

    • pwnez

      Are you one of those guys who counts how many ‘likes’ they get so you feel special? If that’s the case why does he have more ‘dislikes’ then me? Yep, out of the 30 articles on the first page of the SEScoops website I commented on an astonishing 6 articles! Talk about NON-FREAKIN-STOP, man!!!
